Stephanie— that sounds way overpriced for propane. When we moved into our house in South Carolina it was out in the country so no gas. The propane company gave us the tank to use as long as we filled it with them, and ran the gas line to the stove too. They had a $9/month minimum charge and about the only time I used that much gas was when we hosted Thanksgiving! It was pretty amusing when the giant truck would back down the driveway and the guy would top off the tank with a little PFFT and that was it!

Ok that was 29 years ago (yikes!) but it’s hard to believe that it’s gone up that much.

I think Propane is a green house gas. I'll call Sloppy Joe to check tomorrow.

The Miami Beach lockdown seems to be generated by the fear that the officials may be blamed for an outbreak of Covid.

They'd be visionary if they allowed it to continue and nothing happened.

I doubt the media would allow that meme to exist considering their usual coverage.

I remember the coverage of the Sturgis bike rally. Nothing really happened, but they went out of their way to prove that something, we're not sure what, happened.

People are stifling themselves in fear of condemnation of something that probably won't happen.

Florida's DEATH rates for old folks are lower than CALIFORNIA. Lock downs, and MASKS change nothing. 2 thoughts. China gave us this, regardless if you even might believe China, it is VERY VERY CLEAR that they gave us this.
FLORIDA is 29th out of 50 states in death rates.

I am going to warn you right up front: this is long – and most (if not all) readers will not need the level of specificity contained within. You guys are smart and already get it, but I wrote this for sharing with people who have not yet “got it” to help them understand some of the irrationality and chaos they may be sensing these days, so please bear with me for a few minutes of your day. There is just no other way to till this ground without using multiple plows.

Here we go down the rabbit hole.

It seems the progressive left and their allies in the collectivist and radical camps have decided “white supremacy” is the cause, reason, and outcome for everything these days – even when blacks commit crimes against Asians or each other, it is due to anger caused by white supremacy (or Donald J. Trump, which in their lexicon is just another term for “white supremacy”).

People need to understand from whence this tactic arises and they need to understand the concepts of postmodernism and Critical Theory (the parent theory that gave birth to Critical Race Theory). To do so, they should be familiar with the term “metanarrative” and the names of some people – Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, you should already know – but you should also know Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Herbert Marcuse, and Jean-François Lyotard.

The “metanarrative” is a concept much like the One Ring to rule them all of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. In the books and the Peter Jackson movies, the One Ring is essentially a physical manifestation of a metanarrative, one grand narrative to rule all narratives.
Casey Given, writing at the Foundation for Economic Education, describes the metanarrative concept this way: “As the word’s etymology implies, metanarratives are narratives about narratives, giving a grand structural story to human history. In plain English, they’re the tales we’ve been told all our lives about existence from various perspectives. Christianity’s metanarrative, for example, is that humans have been sinful since Adam and Eve’s fall in the Garden of Eden, but there is hope for salvation in accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. The Enlightenment’s metanarrative is that rational thought grounded in empiricism leads to human progress. Marxism’s metanarrative is that the history of the world has been one of class oppression, and a revolution of the proletariat is the only solution to end poverty, scarcity, and injustice.”

As the definition indicates, metanarratives are typically built from the bottom up. Individual narratives are collected into common group narratives, and then the common group narratives are combined into one grand narrative. As one would expect, through the combination of narratives, the metanarrative that remains is the result of an “averaging” of sub-narratives, the result of a process of “sanding off the corners” as it were while retaining the critical substance that glues all the sub-narratives together.

The world has always had metanarratives – it can be argued that nations themselves are metanarratives. We each live separate lives, each of us with our own stories, and yet we are united by a common national bond, that of being American. In a sense, even our Constitution is a metanarrative and that Western civilization is also a metanarrative.
Whew. Done with that for a moment – now, if you aren’t bored to death, I’ll go to the names mentioned earlier.

Jacques Derrida invented the concept of “deconstructionism”. Deconstructionism is based on two ideas: first that no passage or text can possibly convey a single reliable, consistent, and coherent message to everyone who reads or hears it and second is that the author who wrote the text is less responsible for the piece’s content than are the forces of culture (such as language) and the author’s unconscious biases and ideology. While deconstructionism seeks to define the “real meaning” of something said or written by delving into the cultural context and individual biases and ideology of the speaker or author, one can see how it can also be used to twist meaning when the “deconstruction” is based on assumption or a willful misreading of history or context.

Michel Foucault is generally credited with the birthing of philosophical postmodernism, “a movement characterized by broad epistemological skepticism and ethical subjectivism, a general suspicion of reason, and an acute sensitivity to the role of ideology in asserting and maintaining political and economic power.”

Herbert Marcuse, a member of the Frankfurt School, taught at Columbia University, Brandeis University, and the University of California at San Diego. While Marxism was generally accepted as an economic theory (as Marx himself intended), Marcuse sought to facilitate the translation of Marxism into cultural terms. By applying Marx’s theories of oppression of economic classes to cultural and racial groups, Marcuse gave birth to a new form of class warfare based on ethnicity and race, resulting in both Cultural Marxism and Critical Race Theory.

In his 1979 book, “The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge”, the French philosopher François Lyotard defined postmodernism this way, “Simplifying to the extreme, I define postmodern as incredulity towards metanarratives”. Simply put, postmodernism is about the destruction of metanarratives - but in truth, even postmodernism has a metanarrative. Somewhat unsurprisingly, that metanarrative is contradictory because postmodernism’s metanarrative is the destruction of metanarratives.

Ouch. Sorry if that caused a small brain aneurism, but postmodernism and its political vehicle, progressivism, is rife with logical contradictions. Neither can exist without them, which seems to be impossible because in nature, anything opposed to itself cannot exist.

I guess drugs help with that cognitive dissonance.

Now think of how a metanarrative like the United States could be destroyed – one could either attack it from the bottom up, destroying all the individual sub-narratives, or attack it top down, by creating a competing metanarrative to overwhelm and dispel the metanarrative that defines our nation.

As the Marxists finally realized, a bottom-up attack does not work in the US because so many sub-narratives have the defense of being true. Economic division is impossible in an economic system where everyone defines their own success and has the open opportunity to pursue the best way to achieve it. Given the lack of success of the bottom-up attack, they settled on the top-down competing metanarrative approach, giving birth to the OTSR, the Oprah Theory of Systemic Racism: “You are a racist white supremacist, and YOU are a racist white supremacist, and YOU – yes, you over there - are a racist white supremacist, too! Everybody is a racist white supremacist!”

As in the old Ted Turner “Captain Planet and the Planeteers” eco-propaganda cartoon, contemporary Marxists combined the five powers of Marx, Engels, Derrida, Foucault and Marcuse and summoned Earth’s greatest champion, Captain Progressive.

The problem is that top-down metanarratives are not based on existing sub-narratives, they are the opposite, top-down metanarratives assume that they explain all the sub-narratives, that the sub-narratives are dependent on the grand narrative, not that the grand narrative is built upon them.

And that is why top-down metanarratives are typically wrong and almost always political rather than philosophical.

If you are confused, just imagine the synaptic short circuits that go on every nanosecond inside the skulls of postmodernists. It is like a Pink Floyd laser light show at the Hayden Planetarium or living inside a massive thunderstorm cell. No wonder they do not make a lick of sense.

rse

Steph--

Not confusing to me, but then Foucault comes up a great deal because most think tanks, however they market themselves are relying on his concept of 'governmentality' for what they are pushing and their utter disdain for the individual, traditionally cherished in the West.

Metanarratives work best without a large store of facts because those get in the way of accepting the sought Generative Metaphor as Donald Schoen of MIT called it. Facts are what made someone like me come up with the alternative phrase Inapt Metaphor.

Postmodernism was ultimately touting the role of the subjective instead of Rationalism/Modernism's push of the Objective. Unfortunately, there is a pincer action going on, which is what I have been working on for several weeks to pin it all down and then reconceive in more ordinary English.

A bridge between the objective and subjective that will reliably guide future action because it is grounded in the unconscious mind and deliberately instilled there.

Speaking of facts, if the Atlanta shooter's motives were antipathy toward Asian Americans instead of sex workers at places he had frequented, why not target nail salons in the area? But that's a factual analysis grounded in the reality of the geographic area and inconvenient to the desire to create ire in the Asian American community.

When I was listening to one of the guys who covers the Border for Bannon's show, he said the cartels send kids with a phone number in their pocket, the assumption being that the phone number is a relativealready here, but no one knows for sure, and they are sent to live with whoever's at the other end of the phone.

Where are these minors ending up? It's expensive to pay the coyotes to get you across, and the older minors often end up working off the debt in drug-smuggling or membership in gangs. What is happening to the younger ones?

A Spanish-speaking reporter might discover what these children have been told and who their relatives are. I think that is why the reporters are being denied access.

I am really upset about this, as this looks to me like the US policy is now to promote child sex traveling and slavery to the drug cartels.

MM, you are gracious to apologize.

It occurs to me this morning that per your reports that you are regualarly/?daily? subjected to disparagement for your support of Trump, so having people here, a place where you feel you are among like minded, also find fault with DJT might seem like a betrayal of some kind of unspoken agreement.

I hope you can see that a person can be enormously grateful for all DJT has done, but recognize his trust in Fauci and Birx was misplaced and retrospectively to many, clearly a mistake.

He had a huge burden on his shoulders, and no more a medical knowledge than the guy who cuts my grass, I bet. The fog of what this virus was in February and March was very, very thick.
When I told my scheduling partner to put me on our April schedule the first week of March, I fully accepted that based on what we were seeing in Italy, I might well die.
By the end of the month, seeing what I saw in our state, I didn't that was too likely. Our ICU had either very old people, or very heavy people, for the most part. And we'd gotten the message from UNCENSORED youTUbe and Twitter to NOT intubate early.

I credit DJT's early decision to stop incoming from China to have saved our west coast.
I wish he'd felt comfortable trusting his gut about sending us to church for Easter, because it was very evident that is what he wanted to do.

I think there is a great deal of truth in what you say today, and probably also what you told me last night.

I also think because I don't have cable, the 2016 election and the Trump administration, as well as the 2020 election, became sort of a morality play and detective novel combined.

Since we don't have television, my only entertainment is the internet, and being cooped up and unable to drive has contributed to my obsession. The problem is, now that I have learned all of this information about the Chinese, the democrats, and the GOPe (not to mention the rest of their accomplices), I am sort of like my daughter's long-haired chihuahua, ready to nip if anyone even LOOKS like they might steal my dog treat!

Here’s a buddy’s response to the AT essay I linked above:

The Supreme Court had been my last hope for our Government’s integrity, but with their political stance to not touch the election legitimacy issue such hope has vanished.

Entertaining the wishes of the radical fringe always seems to lead to a dystopian society (see all forms of communism and fascism) - which appears to be where we are now. Up is now down and wrong is now right. In our society one is now forced to celebrate the mass killing of unborn children, sexual perversion, gender fluidity, etc. I am stupefied that after the era of MLK that segregation is now embraced by the left. Meritocracy has now been replaced with “equity” and math is somehow racist. Stupidly it would seem is a protected class.

Our government is hopelessly corrupt and our press is complicit in its coverup. A nation without borders is no longer a nation. Morality no longer exists except in the hearts of the Patriots. And, yes, our Supreme Court, has actively participated in our Country’s destruction.

My hope is that the pendulum swings back towards man’s more noble nature - a general resurgence of morality and common sense and service. The perversions of our modern era can hardly get worse and at some point we have to hit bottom.

The Pareto Rule, where 80% of the consequences come from 20% of causes, comes to mind. Thus the obvious question would seem to be one of how we rid ourselves of that 20%. If history is any judge a war, revolution or plague is not too far off.

If the 2022 elections reset our politics I’d be much encouraged. However, It has all gone south so quickly that I have trouble seeing that eventuality, especially if the “rules” for conducting such elections have been rigged against fairness and transparency.

It’s morning here and I can hardly believe what I have written. I have always been, and remain, an optimist person. But, what I have written is rather dark. I refuse to believe our fellow countrymen agree with the path the current regime has set for us. The constant barrage of assault against our constitution, our Country, cannot stand, no matter what the medial and communists in our government proclaim. Patriots will hopefully rise up and throw the bums out this next election cycle.

P.S. How is it the Fed’s keep destroying the computer records of the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Jeffery Epstein, and Hunter Biden? One begins to see a trend.”

MT--

I have been working on those dark plans since this am as a new report from a group I follow is out. About half way through I am taking a walk.

Essentially it's all a rationale for people to now accept being "a node in the network...who both coordinate and are coordinated" apparently to be unaware we are to now be governed globally at a psychological level. They can try, but the reality of what is happening and how is out there and quite understandable.

Thats true but didnt their other scandal affect them financially.

We are, of course. That's why God invented government grants.

Stop calling it an Insrrection!

Mid,

We are at our high of 72. But I still need a sweatshirt, and the breeze is strong! I’ve actually spent a few hours inside which is rare for me!

62 & sunny here. Supposedly dry and windy (per weather service, everything is still soaked from snow melt, not much breeze), so I can’t burn the debris pile. Just spent the day creating moar debris and making the pile bigger. (Aka landscaping)”

Jane

Apparently I changed your name JIB, to Mid. Do you like it?
